Most pres­sure for Dragons

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

DE­FEND­ING premiers St Ge­orge Illawarra are the NRL team un­der the most pres­sure go­ing into the 2011 sea­son, ac­cord­ing to their op­po­nents. Just two days af­ter watch­ing the Dragons con­quer Wi­gan to claim the World Club Chal­lenge, ri­val clubs de­clared in an anony­mous poll they’re also un­der ex­treme pres­sure to con­tinue to de­liver for their fan­base. The Wests Tigers were tipped to fea­ture heav­ily at the top of the lad­der, gain­ing two votes as the team to beat, while one player ex­pected Bris­bane to bounce back, in­stalling them as favourites de­spite a dis­ap­point­ing 2010.
